Hello All,
I have spent enough time trying to find out if the native device drivers in Linux need to be modified for it to work on Linux or not. I havent been able to find a specific answer, so I thought i will post a query on this list. So here are a list of some question that I have.
1. Will native Linux device drivers work when running on Zen VMM?
2. Has XenSource or somebody have written the front end and back end driver for every device driver in Linux ? Or is it that only for a limited set of devices the front end and back end drivers were developed.
3. Is there some kind of documentation availabl for writing split device drivers?
Thanks in advance for your help.
